I understand from a discussion 3 years back (Bioconductor: Package "Is Not Available") R 2.13 (or so) is the latest R version that is compatible with GEOQuery package.
Does anybody know if there are plans to update this package to fresher R versions?
Or could it be so this package is getting abandoned?
From what I understand the purpose of this package is to encapsulate R's weak formatting and parsing features but since nowadays R is being integrated quite well with high-level programming language (e.g. http://rforge.net/Rserve/), so the formatting and parsing can be smoothly be done with a high-level programming language.
